planting potatoes

We spent the afternoon sowing potatoes. There is something so incredibly satisfying about plunging our hands into the warm, moist, living earth, planting the seed potatoes, watering them in and then covering them back up. I could hardly believe how wonderfully our little earth-worm friends have worked the soil for us this winter, how easy it was to plant compared to the concrete soil that surrounds our patch.

I can hardly contain my excitement as I wait for the little shoots to start bursting from the ground.
